If you are a woman with anything more than an A cup, finding a sports bra that is not only supportive, but also cute, is kind of like finding the golden egg on Easter… but better.
Honestly, my sister and I are both in the full C to DD range and run about 5 times a week, so we are always keeping an eye out for good sports bras. Regardless of wither you are into running, cross-fit, cycling, or sweaty gym sessions, no girl wants her ladies to be jostling about. But we also would prefer to look like we didn’t still our grandmother’s bra from the 60’s, meaning balance between cute and functional is key. So, the next time you’re going on the hunt for the perfect sports bra, keep these 5 brands with cute sports bras in mind, they are some of my favorites for bigger busts.
If you are into fitness and haven’t heard of Sweaty Betty, get with it. I admit, most of their stuff is pretty expensive, but they are crushing the fitness clothing game. And, while their leggings and crops may be a bit out of my price range, their sports bras are worth every penny. Unlike most fitness clothing companies who offer one or two supportive sports bras along with their 20 designs of strappy yoga crops, Sweaty Betty has a large selection of bras for girls who want to do more than a downward dog. And, they are actually cute! Some of my favorites are their High Intensity Run Bra, their Ultra Run Bra, and their Victory Run Bra. They have recently come out with their All Train Bra that looks promising, but I haven’t had a chance to get it yet, so jury is out on that one.
Yoga pants are not the only thing Lulu lemon does well, their sports bras are pretty amazing also. This company has a decent range of bras that clearly show a progression of support, so while bras like their Flow Y Bra are not going to work for anyone with more than a handful, their Enlite Bra, Ta Ta Tamer III, and their Time To Sweat Bra, all cater to bigger busts. My only word of caution with Lulu is to read the reviews if you are shopping online. The company does keep negative reviews on their page, which I really respect, so it is pretty easy to see how the bra preforms once purchased.
It’s crazy to me that a lingerie company has produced some of the best sports bras, but I guess if you know what makes a good regular bra, you have a head start on sports bras. However they did it, Victoria’s Secret/ Sport has become one of my favorite places to shop for sports bras. They have so much to choose from as far as style, and have made it a point to offer many high support bras. Some of my recommendations are the Angel Max Sport Bra, The Incredible Lightweight Max, and Knockout Front-Close. This brand also offers a lot of deals on their bras, so they are a bit more budget friendly than the others on this list.
Adidas is one of those brands I thought was only good for shoes and the occasional hoodie, but they have one of my most used sports bras. If you haven’t looked at their online sports bra selection yet, they might surprise you with the amount of good-looking, supportive styles they offer. Their Stronger For It bra is built for larger breasts, and can be worn with straight straps or in a cross back for even more support. But their Racerback Bra is where it’s at for me, this bra may look like your average sports bra from the front, but it has a cute open-back design that doesn’t compromise it’s high level of support… it’s a winner.
I have a love-hate relationship with Under Armour. I love them because they make great sports bras, and my running shoes, but I hate them because they discontinued my all-time favorite running bra. Regardless of the past, Under Armour is still producing some of the best supportive sports bras. Their UA Vanish High is always a safe choice, as well as their Armor Eclipse High. My only word of advice with shopping this brand is to think twice before opting for their front zip styles because I have had some issues with them opening as I run, but other than that, they are definitely worth checking out.
Like I said earlier, I am always open to new sports bra finds, so if you have any favorite brands with cute sports bras, comment below!
